CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel says the winner of the 2012 presidential election will have an opportunity to shape the country for decades to come and he urged voters to give President Barack Obama a second term.
Speaking Tuesday at the Democratic National Convention, Emanuel said Obama has tackled the tough problems -- from passing health care overhaul to saving the American auto industry. The mayor said Obama's opponent, GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, was willing to turn his back on Detroit and believes in giving tax cuts to the wealthiest Americans.
Emanuel said the country needs proven leadership to deal with the inevitable crises and challenges it will face.
Emanuel served as Obama's chief of staff until late 2010 when he left to run for Chicago mayor.
